Temporary custody of niece & nephew

My sister, who lives in arizona, has verbally awarded my family, which lives in virginia, temporary custody of her 3 sons and 1 step-daughter. I do not know if we need court intervention or not. I am searching for legal documentation which would allow us to render medical assistance if necessary and to obtain local financial assistance, as the were recieving this in the state of arizona. Unfortunately i cannot handle all four children so it has been agreed that two of the children will reside with me, 1 with our parents, and the other with our brother & his wife. Do we need 3 seperate agreements or would one specifying me as their temporary guardian be sufficient?
